This is a beautiful coral hook with natural bevels and swirls.
An ornate coral hook reads:
"From time immemorial, the race called Elothean has sent its hooks into the ocean in search of fish. The fish are finally trying to get even. This coral hook has been fabricated by those 'that got away' in order to capture the unsuspecting Elothean, but in practice (except for one highly doubtable tale told a century ago) has so far proven unsuccessful."
